Fix the bugs! 1/5
By MacBook Pro 2014
Two major issues. One just started with the latest update - all videos automatically play when you open a story to read. Please make this go away! The other has been going on a while - as a story loads, it brings you all the way down to the bottom of the article, causing you to have to scroll back up and find the spot you were reading. So annoying!
More fake news 1/5
They actually reported a story that they couldn’t confirm from buzz feed! Really. Not a real news station but another Democratic sponsored news station affiliated with Disney? Turns out the story was totally false. We need honest unbiased news.
Terrible auto play videos app update 1/5
For people trying to catch up on local news while in a doctor’s lobby or on their lunch break at work, we really don’t need a video to auto play when you’ve provided words to us to read. This is a horrible update and one that will stop a lot of people from checking the news in situations where they are trying to be quiet. There was a play button before - why does it have to be shoved down our throats now?
Work on this website... now.. you can’t even look at a story without an advertisement.. blaring out!!! Geez!!
Need more adds 1/5
Please increase your add revenue so you can pay someone to fix this app.
On a more positive note, I like how I can read an entire sentence before springing to the ad!...automatically!
Using this app takes the edge off of the news. When I sat down with a newspaper I would get myself totally immersed in the story. I find it virtually impossible to take anything meaningful away after struggling to read from an app that feels more like a video game.
Why isn’t there a pay to delete advertisements option like other apps have?
Deserves NO stars! 1/5
The current version is a HUGE step backwards! The previous version was much better and much easier to use. However, it doesn’t seem like the developers read or pays attention to the feedback; the app is now overwhelmingly disliked and has been ever since the current version was rolled out.
Ads videos 1/5
The advertising videos run over the news videos! After watching the ad, the audio restarts and runs over the news videos! Very annoying!
By Self St. Rage
I don’t want to have to watch a video to get weather info or updates. Please bring back the written summaries! Thanks
Registered nurse 5/5
By Tar judy
I love channel 6 news ,I have been watching it since 1966 , I remember when Lisa Thomas came to channel 6 .
Love Action news! 5/5
By Redhead girl!
Love action news! I grew up watching Action news! I didn’t know any other news station existed!
Bring Back the old Format 2/5
I’ve never written a review before but I really feel I need to now. I really dislike the latest format. I don’t want to have to scroll through all the news stories to see what I want to read. It was much better when I could scroll down a list of stories & select what to read. Also while reading s story it skips around & I have to scroll up to find my place. Please fix this.
To Many commercials! 3/5
Please stop running the same commercial before each segment.
Pls go back to the previous format 1/5
This new format is not user friendly and makes it very difficult to actually see what the news is....I shouldn’t have to hunt for it....I realized I that I look at 6ABC much less as a result of the change in format.
The best 5/5
Love y’all watch while I was on vacation in Cancun, Mexico for a week.
By the retired
Channel 6 news is the best I think my entire family watches channel 6 news.
Live TV 2/5
By Deacon AJK
Very difficult to determine when to watch and how to get to the area for live TV.
Oldie and goodie 1/5
Liked the old version better.
Same old stuff 1/5
By CPA Mike
New app has same old news that hangs around for days. Frustrating if you check a few times a day.
Six months later and news is always six or twelve hours old. The rest is days old. What a waste.
Videos don’t play most of the time
Still can’t stand the “newer” carousel layout 1/5
I want to see all the newest stories and self-select what to read first. I don’t want to scroll and scroll through everything.
Please bring back the outline format.
By U rashid
Love this app! It's up to par and far ahead of the other news apps I use.
Needs update 1/5
On iPad please please send out an new update. Major bugs keeps kicking shutting app down. , app keeps closing. Reinstalled several times. Other then that. ABC Philly is the NUM 1 News app and Team to watch.
By MR 2.1.5
Horrible bias against the president
Old news 1/5
By Just the facts, please!
Most of the news postings are old, some almost a week old! Don’t expect to see up to the minute stories. Update: It hasn’t improved at all. UNWANTED pop-up videos!
Please allow for rewind of the stories. Thank you.
The commercials, ugh! 3/5
By Tishy G
I’m not a fan of having to watch a 30sec commercial before every story.
Always has bugs 3/5
By Color touch
The videos like to crash often, or not sync up. For example, the sound from the weather report is running while the add before the segment is still playing. I also feel like it should be updated more often, I.e., the same newsfeed for two days in a row? There can’t be that little news out there. Besides that, it’s still my main news app.
Love the abcnews app 5/5
It keeps me up to date daily. There are times I can’t watch tv. I can stay informed through my abcnews app.
New Castle, DE
Like the old app! 1/5
Don’t like new format, Delaware section is full of stories about NJ??? Makes no sense
Video feeds are a disaster ....... 1/5
Other sites when you click on a video- an ad starts plays and ends and then video you want starts to play - all goes well ABC6 is nothing like that. Completely random what you will get. Sometimes nothing happens when you hit the play video icon. Other times the video starts only a for a second and then it goes to the ad but you never get back to the video. And if you are really lucky you will get the audio from the ad playing at same time as the audio and video from the story or you will finally get the story to play but the audio won’t be in sync.
Love the app 5/5
By There's that news van again
I moved to North Carolina after a lifetime in Delaware County, PA. I love the ease of use of the app and the ability to see all the local stories that I missed at home. The broadcast team is very clean and formal and professional in Philadelphia. The stations here I’m sure don’t have the budget for clean sharp announcers. The app makes me feel like I am home even though I’m hours away. I may not have a girlfriend but I have Cecily, Monica,Karen, Jeanette , Monica and Alicia.
Hey, I gotta have some eye candy.
Open ads 1/5
By P. Kelly
I never had a problem with the app until now. I always would rate the app with 5 stars......until now. When reading a story all a sudden an add opens up and starts to play....very annoying!!!!! If this continues I’ll delete the app. But I do love the 6 ABC app. Please fix it
Hate it 1/5
Can’t search for keyword. Everything is a video. I want to read stories on the app, not watch a video. Plus the navigation is AWFUL.
Great news app 5/5
Awesome app with instant news and weather access with non stop videos being posted for Philly metro residents its a must have
6ABC new app. 2/5
Liked the old app. was easier to use. Plus lI don’t get alerts from your site and they are turned on in settings.p
Fix the advertising-caused glitches !! 3/5
By Lt 0333
I hate when I’m reading an article and an ad loads in the middle of it and jumps the text way up the screen. It’s jerky, cheap, and frustrating. Otherwise, I like getting my news alerts and being able to click and read them.
ABC news 5/5
By mr happy of belize
Excellent! Accurate! Honest !! MR HAPPY of Belize
iPad & iPad mini 2/5
By Too much tech
My.Rev 2 devices do not work with your current app
The app tends to jump down so the bottom of an article and causes me to lose my place. Other than that, no issues.
You all so bad for weather 2/5
You all so bad for your weather and eagles
Old app was better 1/5
By 3lbs down
It is annoying the way you have to swipe through the stories to read the headlines. The old one was better.
By Leanne Barrels
Great app! I really like the fact I can get updates, events &happenings ! I highly recommend this app it rocks
By Ace mcFly
What is frustrating is that there are so many in-article ads. Worst of all, they do not seem to load until you scroll down toward them and then the article text you have been reading will jump far off the screen and I ALWAYS have to scroll around searching for the text. Usually another ad loads in the process and you don’t know whether you were above the ad or below the one you see on the screen. Fix it WPVI!
App rate 1/5
Horrible app. Ever since the new one came out, it is horrible. Can’t get on with just my regular data. Will only connect when I’m on WiFi
Improvements recently made are terrible 1/5
By 6abc viewer
Recent improvements made a good app bad. There used to be a nice list of news stories where you could pick one to read. Now, you have to constantly scroll to see different stories- scroll up and down as well as left and right. Terrible.
Ad delays loading & then scrolls 1/5
By TTT phila area
The ads that are in bedded in the middle of the story delayed loading & when your reading the article it will jump up and down after the ad loads & mess up your place in article because of the ads delay loading horrible design
By slick marv
Need search icon to review consumer news, what’s the deal.
What happened 1/5
By TheFish 702
Quit working over a week ago.
Last two updates 1/5
The last two updates to improve an already good app have made the 6ABC app unusable.
Preferred previous app 1/5
The story loads and I start reading but then it reloads and I lose my spot and have to scroll. It’s frustrating because it happens on every single story. Still also prefer all stories on one page- easier to select
